Addressing Systemic Racism in Cancer Prevention and Control: Sharing Opportunities and Experiences
September 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Recently, organizations that include advocacy, research, and clinical and professional societies have condemned or called for addressing racism and advancing health equity. In January 2021, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) published a methods report on the definitional and conceptual issues around racism and health inequity to describe how racism and health inequities are currently addressed in preventive health. This panel presentation will present findings from the USPSTF methods report and offer two examples of current work, practice, and research to address racism in health systems. Join learn more about the report and about opportunities and experiences in working to address systemic racism.
